Teams Provisioning Resources


Microsoft Teams crossed the 100 million daily active users a few years ago, and it has been growing ever since. This growth, and Teams’ integral role within the solution architecture of Microsoft 365, has driven the need for Teams Provisioning. This solution enables organizations to set up a structured process for requesting and provisioning a Microsoft Teams Site and Office 365 Group in SharePoint Online. It can help increase productivity, security, compliance and reduce costs by avoiding manual or custom provisioning methods.

Through our commitment to make Microsoft simple, Extranet User Manager offers Teams Provisioning as an open-source solution that empowers business users to self-service create Teams and Office 365 Groups in an approved and consistent way, while avoiding out of control provisioning or having to wait for IT administrators to complete requests. With this foundation in place the solution is completely automated within Office 365, saving users valuable time while also maintaining control over the environment.

The EUM Teams Provisioning solution provides:

  • Self-service forms for requesting new Office 365 Groups, SharePoint sites, Teams, and Channels
  • Automated workflows for approvals (if desired) and provisioning
  • Creation of the Team, SharePoint site, OneNote, Planner, and Channel in a consistent, templated manner
  • Automation of SharePoint, OneNote, and Planner when creating new Teams Channels
  • A governed environment from which to grow your team and improve adoption metrics
